Why do we smile so much..?

Report as

Smiling, like most facial expressions, communicates to those around us what we are feeling. In fact, individuals with relatively little contact with the industrialized world were able to accurately identify at least four (e.g. happiness, sadness, anger, disgust) facial expressions made by those from other cultures. This begs the question whether emotion expressions are universal. I think they are.

if you smile then you make other people smile and if you do that then it makes you seem like you are a nice person and it takes more musclezs too frown so thatzs why we smile and we try not too use as much muscles at anything!!

A smile is a facial expression formed by flexing the muscles near both ends of the mouth. The smile can also be found around the eyes. Among humans, it is an expression denoting pleasure, joy, happiness, or amusement, but can also be an involuntary expression of anxiety, in which case it is known as a grimace. Smiling is something that is understood by everyone despite culture, race, or religion; it is internationally known. Cross-cultural studies have shown that smiling is a means of communicating emotions throughout the world
